hello all,

i am about to move 4 users from using one carrier to another carrier, is there a best to do this seemlessly as they will be porting the phone number for their devices or can i do the setup first for the blackberries then it will make the number change once the date is finalised.

I am also moving the users from full BES to BES express

On BES, if you are changing the wireless service provider/SIM/Contact Number for users it wont make a difference to them.

Moving users from 1 BES to another there are many way.

Hi,

Given that you are migrating users from BES to BES Express and changing carriers, I would suggest performing a full backaup (to ensure contacts, photos etc. are secured), send an OTA wipe (ensure factiory default option is enabled in Security Group IT Policy) and the activate them on the new carrier/BES.

You can then restore any contacts etc. that were not p[art of Exchange.

Regards,

Hi,

You do have the option of using Enterprise Transporter with BES Express - whether it's worth the effort for 4 users remains unclear.

NB. It's only supported on BES EXpress 5.0.2.
